ROCHESTER, N.Y. — A parolee is accused of shooting a man during a carjacking on Thursday night on North Clinton Avenue near Avenue D.

Jose Colon, 22, is charged with robbery, assault, and criminal possession of a weapon. Rochester Police say they found the car he stole in Henrietta.

Rochester Police officers found the victim on North Clinton Avenue after he was shot just before midnight. An ambulance took him to Strong Hospital and he is expected to survive.

After finding the stolen car, RPD officers and Monroe County sheriff’s deputies waited in the area for a suspect to return. According to RPD, Colon got into the car and tried to drive away, which is when police arrested him.

RPD says they found a handgun on Colon during the arrest. Colon is prohibited from carrying a gun because he is on parole after being convicted of a 2020 shooting. He was taken to the Monroe County Jail.
